• Image of Baloji – 137 Avenue Kaniama

Congolese-born Baloji’s music stands at the crossroads of traditional African music and Afro-American music (hip-hop, soul, funk, jazz). Growing up in Belgium, Baloji discovered the culture of sampling electronic music. The result is a record combining African rhythms – not only Congolese, but also Nigerian, Zimbabwean, and Ghanaian–with 808 productions and funk-influenced synths. 137 Avenue Kaniama is a collection of up-tempo tracks designed to make you get up and sweat.
